Look...Pale yellow . pils color I say. Little to no haze.
Smell...very light hint of tropical and citrus hop. Very nondescript
Taste...A pleasant hop trop pop to the top of the palate then a balancing sweetness and dryness.
Feel...An excellent effervescence that triggers the thin feel but very satisfying. almost no lacing
Overall...This beer is really solid and would buy and have again. Sometimes I feel that some beers grow on you over time and with only drinking three of these ever...Anyway this is solid good

It's kind of the Budweiser of IPAs. By which I mean it's certainly not horrible — it's clearly an IPA, which makes it ipso facto better than any light beer, or wheat beer, or bock beer, etc. — and it has at least *some* personality. Tonight I purchased a 6-pack because choices were few at the store I happened into & I hadn't had any Voodoo Ranger for a year or two. It's OK, but I don't expect to buy it again unless I happen to be someplace where it's the only IPA on tap. There are many better alternatives.

12oz can dated best before July.

Pours clear yellow with a half inch head of white. Moderate retention and lacing. Extremely faint citrusy hops in the nose with a touch of honey. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Mild hops on the palate with hints of grapefruit and pine. Finishes with balancing malt and fading honey.

Poured from a 19.2 can with a drink by date of 6/22/22. Solid yellow color with good amount of foamy head and lacing throughout. A bit light on the feel & body, subtle sweet notes of malt with decent hop bitterness. Decent.

New Belgium’s Voodoo Ranger IPA. Contract brewed by Steam Whistle in Toronto. Beer is 7% alc. Honey golden colour with frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is mild hops, more hints of melon than pine. Taste is predominantly piney and tart. Mouthfeel is prickly at first and then kind of silky. Beer is medium bodied with a smooth and wet kind of finish. Very nice glass lacing. Like something out of a 1980s beer commercial. This beer is delicious, if you enjoy the style, which I most certainly do. At 7% it’s boozy so you don’t want to drink a bunch in a row.

Grade: A

Had high hopes as I recently really enjoyed a Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA. This one just really lacked character of any kind really. Drinkable but just ok.

Clear gold color with a decent foamy white head that persists well and produces some very nice lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine with some light malt backbone.
The taste is more malt forward with a nice grapefruit, pine resin and grassy hops balancing it out with some floral and tropical fruit notes mellowing the bite.
The body is light/medium, smooth with moderate carbonation, very easy to drink.
Altogether this another very enjoyable Voodoo Ranger IPA.

I bought a can at the beer store in Ontario 473ml at 7%.
Poured into glass with 1finger head tropical fruit flavors but not overpowering clear golden color good carbonation.
Low to medium bitterness level.
My can is brewed by Steamwhistle brewery in Canada not in the USA .
I don't know the difference because I never had the one from the USA .
Probably they use different water to brew the beer here same ingredients
Ingredients on side of can says pure spring water malted barley hops and yeast.
Overall a solid IPA.
Cheers

With out looking I thought this was a Hazy IPA. It seemed more smooth than a west coast. Had a little hint of citrus, then the hops catch up towards the end. Not a bad IPA, no where near the top though. I’ll stick to the Fat Tire from this place.

Copper golden in color with a white head that leaves some lacing

Tropical (mango & pineapple) as well as Citrusy aromas

Medium carbonation and medium bodied (not to silky nor too dry)

Very well balanced flavors with honey and caramel like sweetness to start and finishing with an earthy delicious hops towards the end.

Overall a simple and delicious IPA

7.0 ABV |IBU 50 (feels like 40 -45 ish)

A-Copper orange with a nice layer of white head and hood lacing
S-Aroma is malt forward with layers of dank hops and ripe prunes, apricot and raisin
M-Carbination is high to medium, with medium body and a slightly peppery mouthfeel
T-Sweet malt upfront with a smooth bitterness carrying a dank flavour of pine and resinous heavy hop earthiness moving forward
O-What a great brew!! Really hit the spot. Solid, classic IPA
